a group like this. but there is support for it in this environment and so i don't think, the system will dissolve just because there's resistance. >> trevor, i often feel like when you talk to political operatives on both sides and found risers on both sides, and donors, you hear from a strong word but this is kind of self hating core to the people are participating in this system that feel trapped. this thing is just going to go on and, therefore, they'll play and get used to. is that what is sustained this? what is it that keeps it going? >> during the course of the campaign i a chance to talk to a range of major republican donors comment and even victimized even they because i think republicans were interested in the super pacs, the party had embraced of them and citizens united. but i found romney donors saying to me this is terrible. i don't want to be able to write an unlimited check. this is not our president ought to get selected. we need to talk about this after the election. so, you know, now think one of the things that i will be doing is circling back around and saying,
that climate change has little to do with the state of the environment, but much to do with the state of capitalism and transforming the american economic system and you see an opening with sandy, right? >> i do see an opening because, you know, whenever you have this kind of destruction there has to be a reconstruction and what i documented in the shock doctrine is that these right-wing think tanks leak the american enterprise institute and the cato institute and heritage foundation, they historically have gotten very, very good at seizing these moments of opportunity to push through their wish lists of policies and often their wish lists of policies, after hurricane katrina there was a meeting at the heritage foundation just two weeks after the storm hit. parts of the city were still under water and there was a meeting and "the wall street journal" reported from it and the heading was 31 free market solutions for hurricane katrina and you go down the list and it was -- don't re-open the public schools. replace the public schools with vouchers and drill for oil in anwar and the arcti
of $15 a barrel oil by 2025. in terms of prices, we're talking about in the environment similar to today's, maybe slightly worse, in order to hit those and provide incentive to hit those will targets and also to dampen demand. that is part of the iaea calculus. you have both the production and demand side. an order for us to even in part a modest amount and get to that point requires a major steps forward in fuel efficiency. host: so who is benefiting the most? guest: the middle east continues to benefit tremendously. opec countries share a global connection forecast to go up -- production forecast to go up to nearly half of world oil supplies. the middle east remains a big beneficiary. the u.s. will be better off in those terms than it would be without this increase will bring production. we will be keeping more money at home. oil makes up about two-thirds of our trade deficit now. that number will decline. oil companies that do very well with higher prices will continue to do very well. host: back to the idea of shale gas. you mentioned some parts of the country where this is happening
to the environment than in fact was really occurring. acknowledging those lies, b.p. has agreed to plead guilty to felony obstruction of congress. make no mistake. while the company is guilty, individuals committed these crimes. and we have also unsealed today a 23 count indictment charging b.p.'s two highest ranking supervisors aboard the deep water horizon with manslaughter and violation of the clean water act. the indictment charges the two b.p. well site leaders with negligent and gross negligence on 2010. the red flags indicating that the well was not secure both men failed to take appropriate action to prevent the blow out. a separate indictment was also unsealed today charging a former senior b.p. expect sive with obstruction of a investigation and making false statements to law enforcement officials. the indictment alleges that he on behalf of b.p. intentionally under estimated the amount of oil flowing from the well. he allegedly cherry picked pages from documents, with held other documents al together and lied to congress and others to make this spill appear less catastrophic than it
? how is your portfolio altered? >> neil, you've got to cover the downside of this environment. they want them unprotected against losses. they're anticipating antibusiness climate, anticipating uncertainty pickling business contractions and so we're covering the downside making sure we're in a position where we can make money when the market is going up to be productive if the market is going down and lock it in on the way up. neil: what do you play besides lead futures and protecting us from nuclear fallout? >> there are three ways to have your money completely protected against loss, fb fdic insurance. they're gravitating towards the guaranteed contract because the principle is guarantee against losses and make it the spitting and that is the important thing to do. neil: thank you very, very much. you know, when we look at this whole health care law, some a deadline set, click next year when you have to start getting everyone into the system and pay the search tax the rich will have to pay in order to continue sustaining it, there's a deadline coming on friday that almost no
are looking at, as you said, an environment in which people are in panic mode over the fiscal cliff. i think there is a lot of support, actually, because the population does not seem to understand what the fiscal cliff is and what it means. what they are hearing on television is a lot of hype about what will happen if the fiscal cliff is not avoided. that is actually generating quite a bit of support for both sides to come together. it seems adult. it seems like the right thing to do. put your partisan differences aside for the country, and find some way to avoid the cliff. what that means in practice is striking some kind of deal, what we have heard of, as a grand bargain. it is important to keep in mind that the grand bargain itself, is really a form of austerity. this is an austerity plan. when you have an economy that is still struggling to find its feet, and you are talking about imposing austerity, i think we have seen pretty clearly, watching europe over the last 3.5 years -- that is not a good idea. we definitely have time to start -- to stop and get this right, before we follow gree
investment and the people, to follow our country in the competitive environment, and taxes is one of them. when you do that, you will get more revenue. it's guaranteed. again, it is sort of that thing we were talking about earlier. this is an opportunity for us as a country. and if you look at the congressional budget office analysis, what tax reform could mean in terms of macroeconomic impact of growth, i mean, all of them will lead to more growth, whether it is corporate tax reform or individual tax reform. >> he said this was fought over in the campaign and we fought over tax rates. rising tax rates. jay carney, the white house press secretary did say that the president will veto any bill that extends the current tax rates. so he insists that tax rates go up those making over $250,000. what would your recommendation be to the republican party in the senate? >> first, i believe the resident does have a detailed view of the press secretary. i like the president's comments better than jay carney's comments. i think jay carney was maybe, i think he was a little behind the curtain. i hope.
problems would be to develop a proper base for the economy. other than the intimidating of its environment. i was a meeting this year with a group of people who describe themselves as reformers in russia. at these meetings i had said -- you want a democratic system? are you crazy? [laughter] >> another question about china -- is some level of corruption in chinese politicians inevitable? is there some level that is acceptable for the party? is the problem the [unintelligible] -- that he went above that threshold? >> i think it was primarily an attempt to achieve preeminent or eminent outside of the established patterns of progress being made within the party. because if he had succeeded, it would not change the whole structure of the party. there is no acceptable level of corruption. is some level of except -- corruption acceptable? it is not for an outsider to say. every indication is that there will be demonstrative evidence to curtail corruption. that is the big question. i think they will succeed, but it will be a rocky road. >> with the u.s. becoming increasingly self-reliant regardin
situations but also to look at the bigger public policy, that of the environment and that of climate change and global warming. we need to be cognizant of our stewardship over the -- our planet. we need to make certain that if these data that are compiled are telling us that there is increased prescription, for instance, over the catskills watershed, in my district, let's respond accordingly to sound public policy as it relates to our environment and our stewardship of the environment and let's be cognizant of the needs in response of this measure. you know, i'll just say this, and i know you want to add to this discussion here. i'll say this, in a time where government perhaps has been hit hard by critics out there suggesting there's no role for public sector here, we need to reduce government, i can tell you people addressing the war room, as they designated it, putting together all of the professionalism and academics and people who operate these programs and how well trained, watching that compilation, that collaborative effort of these profession alcs who are responding to public -- pr
around the senate and house, and i can sense that there is a great environment to actually do something. the question is, it is it going to be comprehensive? i doubt it. today what we know as comprehensive reform in 2006 and 2007 is not necessarily what the administration is talking about. the president talking about comprehensive reform. but i wonder if that comprehensive reform includes a guest worker program. at the end, that is the key to resolving this issue. the unions, which the president is loyal to, don't want to see a guest worker program, because they don't want to see more foreign workers enter the country. they want to ensure that labor markets, the labor supply, remain small. the guest worker program is key, because to grow our economy, we need to add to growth industries that need the foreign work force. the last reform we have under the reagan years lacked a workable guest worker program. that was amnesty could be gave amnesty to 3 million individuals. but at the time, the market had already absorbed those 3 million individuals. what happened? immigrants kept coming in t
are not in a warm environment. everything is wet, everything is moist. so i just -- i can't -- i can't see this happening in america. but here we go again. this is katrina 2012 for a lot of people here in the new york area. shannon: there was amazing voter turnout in philadelphia and some are questioning the numbers. up next we'll take a look to see if those figures add up. plus the big companies saying president obama's healthcare law could force them to make tough decisions to stay afloat. >> if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan, period. no one will take it away. no matter what.

to better protect our diplomats on our posts around the world in this challenging environment that we're in? all these, i think, are legitimate, but i'd love to see us end the partisan wrangling over this and return to what i think ought to be the essential focus, and that is where are we on the hunt for those responsible and bringing them to justice? jon: there were two attacks we're talking about here, obviously. one on the consulate and then one, apparently better organized with the use of mortars, that kind of thing, that hit the cia safehouse some hours later. are you thinking that perhaps some of the lives lost in that second attack could have been saved or should have been saved? >> well, you know, i think it's really a question of whether we had adequate security there and how much of this we can foresee. um, the folks that were involved acted in the most heroic ways, and i wish we could get out more of the information, frankly, about the heroism involved in those that were at the annex and those at the diplomatic post. one of the things, again, i think the pickering commission will
countries that have more competitive environment and taxes are one of them. yes, we have to reform the tax code. when you do that, i will get more revenue. it is guaranteed. again, sort of as i was talking about earlier. this is opportunities here. this is opportunity for us as a country. if you look at the congressional budget analysis and joint tax committee analysis, what tax reform could mean in terms of macroeconomic impact and growth, all will lead to more growth, whether corporate tax reform or individual tax reform. >> right but if the president insists as he did last friday, this was fought over in the campaign and, fought over tax rates, rising tax rates, he didn't ice the words rates himself but jay carney, the white house press secretary said the president will veto any bill that extends the current tax rates. if he insists that tax rates go up for those making over $250,000, what's, what would your recommendation be to the republican congress and senate? >> first having worked in two white houses i believe a president does have a veto over the press secretary. thank goodness b
investment is going to follow countries that have a more competitive environment in taxes is one of them's a we have to reform the tax code and when you do that you will get more revenue. it's guaranteed. again, as i was talking at earlier there are opportunities here for us as a country and if you look at the congressional budget analysts this and go to the tax committee analysis what tax reform could mean in the economic growth and all of them will lead to more growth with this corporate tax reform. estimate of the president says what he did last friday, this was fought over in the campaign and we fought over rising tax rates. jay carney said they would veto any bill that extends the current tax rate so if he insists that tax rates go out for those making over to under $50,000 will would your recommendation before the conference in the senate? >> working in to white house is i believe a president does have a veto because i like the president's comments better than jay carney's comments. i think jay carney mabey was a little behind the curve on that because look, it makes no sense to ta
are being formed today in an environment that's much, much more radical than was the case nearly a decade earlier. i think there are some important lessons that the u.s. can learn from iraq and from afghanistan and from what's taking place there. but again the thing i would take away and the thing i would really stress to people is that this is not a war that the u.s. can win on its own. it's very -- it's very tempting for the u.s. to see a problem and to want to go in and solve it all the way. and i think there has to be a realization that sometimes being so pro active and carrying out so -- proactive and carrying out so many missile strikes and drone strikes can actually have a negative impact. >> ibrahim, did you want to chime in on this one? >> well, i didn't hear the question. i have a hard time hearing from the audience. but what greg said made sense to me so thank you. [laughter] >> i'm sorry. i'll start repeating the question to make sure we can get it. >> thank you. >> in the back. >> thank you. good morning. my name is giancarlo gonzalez with talk radio service. yemeni president
folks at the highest classified levels, they do that in a classified environment, get to the bottom of what did we know, when did we know it, how did it come to us and what did those feeds look like and how did we fuse that picture and disseminate that picture? once we get a better sense of that, you can say with greater confidence we need to combine armed services, we need the combined intelligence and foreign affairs. >> david petraeus is going to testify tomorrow, he was head of the cia. he was in benghazi. he talked to the surviving players i should say. will he have every single answer that lawmakers need? >> oh, no, carol, not at all. you know the answer to that question. he'll have through his own filter and through the filter -- every piece of data that is input goes through a filter on multiple levels to include your personal level. so he's not going to have every answer. he's going to be able to provide what he was able to assess. and in spite of what he's dealing with on a personal level, he can compartmentize very, very well. we've now figured that out. he'll be able to
and the environment. the quality of life issues. host: walk us through the new leadership in china. guest: they cut it down by two. let's talk and more decisions. xi jinping will be the head of the military. host: his background. guest: he is to run large coastal provinces -- he used to run large coastal provinces. he has lineage with mao tse- tung. the person who will be the premier is ranked number two in the party. host: what is his background? guest: he came from a poor province. he has a ph.d. from a famous university in china. he has a solid command of english. he is seen as more of a reformer. host: is there a strong middle- class or is there a disparity between the poor and the wealthy in china? guest: that is the most serious problem for the leadership to address, social inequality. there are 200 million people are considered middle class. they are demanding an expecting different things from the leadership that they may or may not be able to deliver. host: the president is circling china through southeast asia and not going to china. is that a political message to china? guest: china will
was not sufficiently angry enough in this environment that the primary process was fought in. he wasn't anti-intellectual enough. >> and downplayed his conservatism. >> that was the biggest mistake. he downplayed his conservatism from the very beginning. and i want to say again, mark halperin, the anti-intellectualism in the republican party over the past decade has been growing. that's another thing bobby jindal has been talking about. that's got to change. that's got to change. we not only have to win over hispanics, we've got to win over educated hispanics. educated african-americans. educated white people. educated people of all races with ph.d.s, an area we've been losing for decades. >> and joe, there's another issue that i know you think a lot about and thought a lot about that huntsman also talked about which is afghanistan and ending the war. that's another populist issue that i think republicans missed in 2012. the president was for winding down the war. you had others who didn't run that thought that that was an issue to tap into across the board populists including a lot of the g
